Kool Stuff Summary
I've been asked to post more often! Well thank you for your interest, and I will certainly try to do so. The trouble, you see, is that I have this overly hectic schedule, consisting of: school - work - research - projects - and... well.... hopefully "life" if I ever get any. So that means as much as I'd love to post logs often, I just can't always steal the time to do so. But again as I said, I'll sure try.
Now, back to the recent "Hot Topic". If you're still wondering what exactly happened around here during the last week, and where the apparent frenzy came from, well here's what happened.
It all started when my sense of curiosity took me on quite a trip, which resulted in the "discovery" [:P] of some of the most beautiful works of art I've ever encountered. I posted a log about this "demos" which caused a bit of a big bang. Then I decided to share the experience with a group of artist friends. We had a little get together to which we refer as "the display", where we watched a few of these demos and had some discussions. The idea of displaying the demos wasn't something that I had pre-planned. It popped into my mind right on the scene and I'm happy to say it turned into quite the event. The crowd showed some strong feelings toward the 3 demos from the Greek demo group known as ASD, which honestly was no big surprise since...well....so did I! :P
Big thanks goes to Dennis and Tim for helping out with everything, and my deepest heartfelt regards goes to the guys and gals who let themselves burst into tears at certain scenes, including that => scene from"Planet Risk", [Tim, don't think I missed your face! :P], and to my friend Alex [aka Anders] who now has to pay for a brand new brain, since his old one broke during the display of "Animal Attraction". [Does SONY manufacture VAIO brains? hmmmm....nevermind.] You might get a deal on eBay. And of course the biggest and loudest of Cheers, Kudos and You Rox goes to ASD for their super brilliant creations.
As for this <= part of "Iconoclast" during which I myself pretty much lost it .....well we all thought it's a sand-clock on a music box. As it turns out [thanks aMUSiC for the info] this thing is no music box! It's actually an "Antikythera Mechanism", an ancient Greek analog computer!! [info here]. Now is that kool or what??
And as for the sound track for "Animal Attraction" which successfully put us all into trance after listening to it about 10 times straight....here are the lyrics as requested:
A smell in the air,
a game never fair,
I'm holding the dice and you just move a square,
You're facing the wall,
once again when I roll,
Not letting the fate to take it's toll..
Don't you fear my maze,
It's natural to bite your lip and tremble in this fashion,
Mesmerize my gaze,
Touch me and surrender to the animal attraction.
[Lyrics by aMUSiC]
Ok...now I'm ending this log since it has already gone too long, and honestly I have no idea if there was anything else that I was supposed to mention here. If I'm missing something, please let me know and I'll add. And by the way, regarding the question of which of these was actually my fave....oh for cryin' out loud! Is that even a question? I think I've already been loud enough about it that the whole world knows and my sound system is crashing....it's called "Animal Attraction". =>
